fast, scalable irc server

Charybdis is a highly scalable IRC server which presently implements the IRCv3.1 client protocol with some additional components of IRCv3.2. Development of charybdis began in 2005 as a proposed replacement to freenode’s hyperion ircd, designed for use by any network, with roots in ircd-ratbox and ircu. Over time, charybdis has developed, tested and demonstrated many of the features commonly seen in modern IRC networks.

Interesting features that Charybdis has include:

 * SASL support — charybdis was the first IRC server to implement SASL
   support, resulting in the IRCv3 SASL standards.
 * DNS blocklist support
 * Augmented banlist criteria through “extbans”
 * Channel forwarding (channel mode +f)
 * Optional hostname/IP cloaking (through modules, either usermode +h or
 * Colorcode stripping (channel mode +c)
 * CALLERID (user mode +g) with automatic accept when you send a PM
 * TLS encrypted client and server connections
 * Multi-process sandbox architecture for enhanced security, scalability
   and robustness
 * Easy to understand configuration
 * A complete user and operator’s manual

Many of the largest networks in the world use charybdis-based IRC servers, including freenode, EsperNet, DarkMyst and others, because of it’s proven scalability, security and robustness track records
